It is November's final day
Then comes December.
I find myself quiet and contemplative
Tears want to fall, but can't—
It is both a loss and a relief.
I like being at the corner of the couch
Gazing at the tree
Snow has fallen
It is windy and cold.
A question comes to me:
What do I need to get out?!?!
There is a lot of internal and external weight
Enough to cause my feet to ache
So I plan to make a list of what to get out
And follow it little bit by little bit
Until my feet feel light.
